OUR APPROACH

Our investment strategy is embedded in our name - Growth By Acquisition “GBA”.

Our primary objective is to provide an accelerated capital growth to our shareholders & solid and consistent returns to our investment partners. We do this via a two-fold strategy; firstly our primary focus is always on aggressively growing the revenue base of our anchor investments (the first investment in a new sector, geography or vertical), secondly we aim to achieve further growth by scanning for viable acquisitions to add to the anchor.

The vision is to grow a diversified portfolio of assets in key sectors of the economy where the underlying fundamentals support growth prospects. We are risk-averse and always take a longer-term view aiming for long-term cash generation rather than short-term returns.
